Performance Analysis of Turbocharger

Authors(2) :-S. Sowmya, L. S. V. Prasad

Turbochargers have found a prominent place in recent engines enhancing power without much increase in weight. The future trends of automotive engine are universally toward down-sizing, higher power, lower emissions and above all overall efficiency of the engine. Among many technologies revolutionizing automotive development, turbo charging is considered as a significant enabler to meet the ever increasing future demands. Blades are modelled using CATIA and ANSYS for various inlet blade angles and back swept angles. Analysis reveals that for an inlet blade angle of 50 with swept back angle of 30 the turbocharger yielded higher efficiency. The materials considered for the analysis are Inconel 740 and Mar M 247.
